Hey, remember that whole Penn State investigation (or should it be “investigation”?) where the NCAA felt like it had to do something and sort of made things up as it went along to get to the result it wanted? Good times. Many of you weren’t concerned about it, as the cause was so noble and just and all.
So if this turns into a new crusade, I presume you guys won’t have a problem in the world with it. Because Mark Emmert means well.
“Female athletes, particularly basketball players, seem to be getting singled out in gender identity during games. What can the NCAA do about this?” one woman from Purdue asked.
Emmert asked what she thought could be done. The woman suggested sanctioning schools for improper behavior from fans.
“I would certainly support a proposal that would do that,” Emmert said. “If that’s a rule that makes sense and there ought to be some sanctioning like that, then I hope the membership brings that forward. I think that would make good sense.”
Who doesn’t like busting into a couple of choruses of “Kumbaya” now and then?
Yeah, this crap is nuts. Although I have to admit if it turns out that Alabama and Auburn could get into trouble over the callers on Finebaum, I might have to reconsider my objection to it.
